Coppelia is a wonderfully exciting comic story of an eccentric inventor, the animated doll he creates and the havoc they cause in their small village. Music, costumes, sets and the dancers’ skill combine to make this a performance event you will not want to miss. This exciting interpretation of Coppelia is not only great dancing but also great theatre. The original production was so popular on the stage that it was made into an award-winning motion picture featuring Walter Slezak. This funny and fast paced story is the perfect first ballet for novices of all ages and is a bright new perspective for those familiar with the ballet.
